The deal was expected to be sorted out having been included in Cuomo’s fiscal planning. The deadline for budget submissions is Tuesday and regarding making pot legal, Gov. Cuomo said, “Not likely. Too much, too little time.”

On 6th May 2 new bills to advance home deliveries of medical cannabis were approved by Louisiana’s lawmakers. The news is even more interesting because it involves a Representative who has in the past voted down every single move to decriminalize all forms of marijuana.

Rep. Larry Bagely (R)

Interestingly,  both new bills were sponsored by a former staunch opponent of marijuana in all forms. Rep. Larry Bagely (R) said of his bill, “I’ll say this. I have never been a proponent of medical marijuana. I voted against every piece of legislation that came down because I just didn’t believe in it and I thought there was an ulterior motive. But now, constituents in my area, they come to me and they ask me for help because they’re having pain, they can’t find things to cure the pain. They’re using opioids, some of them, they’ve just got problems that the doctors can’t seem to help.”

We wrote in December how Senators Cory Gardner and Elizabeth Warren had introduced news to the Senate. Now Booker has come out strongly to push for federal legalization.

Answering a question from someone called Tom,  he stated, “I cannot tell you how much I agree with you, Tom. There are people throughout this country right now who have PTSD from their military service, children falling into seizures with things like Dravet syndrome, not able to access what is a lifesaving drug for some people. Enough is enough. We need to end this federal prohibition.”
